About Dave Simon
I had my first shop in 1975.
I have always worked with people-skills for personal development and better business.
I started my own sales and management training business in 2002. I now have several businesses, making me a wholesaler, a retailer, a service provider, and a very-part-time farmer...
I know how difficult it is building your own business - I've done it several times.
I'm based in Ryde, so I can easily pop round to visit you anywhere on the Island and show you the numbers that opened my eyes. You can ask me questions - learn more, understand how all this works and check how comfortable you would feel about working with me.
About Our First Meeting
This first Introduction Visit is a gentle introduction to the possibilities.
I'll visit you free of charge: you make no commitment at this stage.
I do not pressure anyone to decide quickly.
If you are clear in your mind that you are committed to improving your business, you are more likely to make more progress.
Our first meeting is to help you explore your Planning Priorities.
To take your business to the next stage, to develop and improve any aspect of it, you need to know what to focus on.
You need to be clear about your Next Main Goal for it's future - even if you're not sure (yet) how you will achieve it.
(You can find information on the Main Goals most people want to achieve here - but I suggest you finish reading this little bit first.)
And I think you will want your Main Goal to fit with your overall Ambitions for your business (more on this follows below).
Then we can break your Main Goal down into smaller Priority Areas that allow us to plan a series of low-cost, low-risk bite-sized chunks for you to act on. I bring a list of those areas you might want to improve to the meeting - this planning process is easy.
Identifying those Priority Areas is an essential first step that will help you prepare to boost your business (even if you decide to use another adviser). This first meeting comes with a no-commitment promise, and all my Five Guarantees - click here for details.
We often meet a second time to discuss questions before we get to the stage of saying Yes or No.
